Police arrested three men caught in the act of having a pot session in Pasay City on Wednesday.

Authorities identified the suspects as Raleigh Fernando, Michael Buban, and Jose Pacia — all arrested around 4:45 a.m. along Tramo Street corner Tengco Street in Barangay 109, Zone 12.


According to police, a tip from a concerned citizen prompted them to launch an operation against the three suspects. The tipster told police about a group of men smoking marijuana inside a tricycle.

The suspects reportedly scampered away and tried to evade arrest upon seeing the approaching policemen. They were however cornered by operatives.


Police recovered from the scene still undetermined amount of suspected marijuana leaves placed in three sachets.

Fernando, Buban, and Pacia were detained at a Pasay City police station as drug charges were being prepared against them.   /kga
